Explore your experiences, relationships, and feelings through this guided tour of
journal-keeping in Jewish tradition.
Journaling has been, and remains, an inherently Jewish activity. From the Kabbalist mystics who recorded their practices of reaching altered states of consciousness, to the more recent journals of those who lived during the Holocaust, to the spiritual precedent for Jewish journal-keeping at holy times of the year, writing, recording, and reflecting have long been a part of Jewish custom.
Janet Ruth Falon delves into the practical aspects of keeping a journal as well as how you can use your journal to nurture Jewish values and concerns. Using examples from her own writing, she demonstrates how journaling can unleash your creativity and reveal aspects of yourself that you may not have thought about before. She also includes 52 journaling tools that teach specific techniques to help you create and maintain a vital, living journal, from a Jewish perspective.
Inspiring and practical, this guided tour of journaling shows how yours can be used to better understand yourself and the world.
“Lively and warm, Janet Falon invokes a noble history of Jewish journal writers and her own moving experiences as a journal writer and teacher. She makes the reader want to keep a journal, not only to access our intimate, spiritual selves but also to get our own words on the page. Most important, she teaches us how.”
Lori Hope Lefkovitz, Kolot Professor of Gender and Judaism at the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College
“A treasure chest of ideas and encouragement. Janet Falon’s passion and insights will inspire writers at every stage of the journaling journey.”
Marlene A. Schiwy, PhD, author of A Voice of Her Own: Women and
the Journal Writing Journey
“Reading this book is like having a personal coach in journal writing. Falon is not only inviting and encouraging, she offers many wonderful tips on how to get started and how to keep going. One is left with the idea that there is no wrong way to journal. Just do it!”
Kay Lindahl, author of The Sacred Art of Listening: Forty Reflections
for Cultivating a Spiritual Practice
